Coach Dave and I went up to Golf Galaxy tonight to check out “Nike Night” and scope out some good deals. I dig Golf Galaxy mostly because of the used bins of golf clubs – it’s like a fun treasure hunt, and I usually come away with something fantastic.
Tonight, I was tempted to buy a new gap wedge to match my TaylorMade irons, but managed to hold off! The big event was the putting contest. I hit a gorgeous putt that… how can I put this delicately… it basically went in but instead of dropping into the cup, the carpet pushed it back. That close to getting into a playoff to win a new Nike putter. Darn it!
Golf Galaxy has been really aggressive in running different events, I noticed a flyer for a “women only” night coming up soon as well which I thought was a great idea.
I ended up buying a shag bag which will help my back a bit – my last trip to the range included way too much bending over (wow, I’m lame!).
